Ice lanterns are a classic for a good reason- they cost nothing and they couldn´t be easier to make. Letś just hope the weather is crisp enough to lit our lanterns and share the beauty with every single passenger:) This year we use all our empty containers and start crafting! But how to make ice lanterns?

  • take two containers, one small enough to fit inside the other
  • fix the containers, using masking tape or just placing a rock inside the smaller one
  • Fill the gap between containers with cold water (and if you wish, add some evergreens, berries etc)
  • Leave your lantern to freeze (in it’s not cold enough outside you can easily use the freezer)
  • To remove lantern from the mold, just let it sit indoors for a while until the surface starts melting.
